Newcastle United vs Arsenal Preview
After an unsteady winter dragged Newcastle back into the relegation battle, their recent results have not only seen them essentially secure another season in the top-flight but also find the net with regularity.
Nine of the Magpies’ 36 Premier League goals this season have come from their last six games and they will certainly fancy their chances of breaching an Arsenal defence whose only top-flight clean sheet since January 30 came against rock-bottom Sheffield United.
However, Steve Bruce’s men are still conceding consistently with 10 goals against them in their last six and just a single clean sheet in across their most recent 12.

With that in mind, combining both teams to score with over 2.5 goals at 21/20 (2.05) looks a solid bet to land for the fourth time in Newcastle’s last five.
